There is something so comforting and elegant about Cupcake Vineyards to me that I just can’t get enough of. Is it the brand’s navy, white, and yellow colors that make it stand out so tastefully (no pun intended) on a dinner table and something I could totally see in Elle Decor? Or is it simply its great taste and quality of the wine that makes for a predictable purchase when choosing between brands. How about all of the above! A well received and well rounded brand visually and in taste makes it such a “go-to” wine. And just when I think it couldn’t get any better, this Sunday I discovered that Cupcake also makes a lovely Prosecco to add to its repertoire.
A peach and apricot filled Prosecco that is enhanced with creamy citrus hints and finishes with a bursting bite to make this Prosecco enjoyable for really any occasion. Enjoy as an apéritif with prosciutto and melon or even with homemade chocolate chip walnut pumpkin bread, which is what I am pairing with this as we speak (while enjoying football – hoping to cheers to a NE Patriots win)! The spice of the pumpkin bread compliments the bubbles and citrus nicely!
And the cost? $11 retail. Seriously!
Happy Sunday and Cheers to Cupcake Prosecco!
